Had great time!



Last Tuesday was a fun day for me and my family because we went sledding with our friends! There's about 5 families came and it was fun! The kids had a blast and they never stop talking about it. This is all we need! Get together as a family and be with our beloved friends.

Cocao and the kitty

 
I painted this kitty cat in a rock and lay it to Cocao side, our female Pitbull. She was surprised when I lay the cat next to her and after I took this photo, she's been licking the rock. I already put a sealer so it doesn't matter if she licks it or not.

store fixtures

I really wanted to have my own ladies dress form with tripod base so that I can make my own dresses and it’s a good practice for me to learn how to make nice dress. My friend from St. Louise already bought her ladies forms and that is the best gift she had for her husband. Well, if you are looking for a modern store fixtures then mfried.com is the right website for you to visit. You can check out their clearance section and save!

Got a new TV!

 
Our old TV is acting funny yesterday. Whenever we turn the tv on, the only part that shows the image is in the middle, both top and bottom are all black. We need to hit the head of the TV so that we can see the whole image in the screen. We tap the head 3-4 times to make it work. Well, this tv is really old, my husband had it a long time ago before I came here in the US. So I told him to get a new TV this weekend. But last night before Dinner, he decided to go to Walmart and get the 47 inches TV that he likes together with the sound system. We set up the TV last night and we got a chance to watch our favorite show Wipeout! So I guess we don't need to wait until weekend to get a new TV.

plastic handles

Here it go again, the plastic handles in the kitchen fell off. I didn’t even notice it until I step the handle in the floor. It was loose and my husband is trying to put it back and make sure it won’t come off again. Needs to tighten it up though. The kids loves to open and close our kitchen cabinets. They always looking for a threat. The plastic handle we have in our closet also needs to be replaced. So I wonder were we could get an affordable plastic handles. Pueblo and Denver is kind a far away for us to drive just to shop for handles. Good thing we can surf online and find all the plastic handles we need and we can just order it online without worrying of driving that far in a big City.

I'm glad they're safe!

I was very surprised when I hear about the typhoon Pablo coming to Mindanao area and the first thing that came to mind is my family in Davao. I always keep on praying that they will be safe there, that typhoon Pablo spared Davao City. I called them to make sure if they are safe and I'm glad they are. I felt so bad to those people died in Compostela Valley and other parts of Davao Oriental. It's very surprising to everyone since this is the first time in Davao to fell the real Typhoon. I thought Davao is a typhoon free area but I think its not true anymore. Hope all people who are affected of Typhoon Pablo will get a lot of help in the government. They really need a lot of help right now. I pray for all those people in Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley.

Month of November

Its been 3 years since my younger sister past away, she past away November 3, 2009 and now this month seems not a good month for me. Lot of people get sick and died this month. My aunt (elder sister of my mom) just past away couple days ago. One of our close friends here in the congregation, their grandfather just died too last week. We attend the funeral last Saturday. Then here's another one, one of our beloved sister in our congregation (she's like a grandmother to me) she fell and broke her ribs and she's in the hospital right now, good thing the surgery went well and they remove her to do rehab. The kids been sick too this past couple days. My 3 year old daughter been sick since last week and she's still have this stuffy nose and cough. We took her to the doctor last Monday and the doctor said we just need to keep an eye on her since she doesn't have a fever. Oh well, November is such a terrible month this year. Hopefully next month it wouldn't be like this.

Im back!

Its been a while since my last update at this blog. I been so busy this past couple weeks because of my rock painting, then going out on service and play with my wii zumba fitness. I also heard bad news from my family in the Philippines. I am sorry for the loss of my aunt, wish I could be there for her funeral. We also attend funeral from one of our close friend here in our congregation. It was very sad to lose someone that is the reason why I don't feel like updating my blog but I am here now, I am back for writing personal post and post new photos here. So happy blogging everyone!

My Latest Project


This is my latest project for the day. This giraffe painting is made of a big rock that I got from Alamosa River. I found a picture of this mommy and baby giraffe in one of our watchtower magazine and It caught my attention that's why I decided to make a rock painting with this mama and baby giraffe. One of our sister in the congregation was interested to buy it so maybe I will sell it for her for a very affordable price. I am not sure how much but will see. How much you think this rock painting cost? Feel free to leave comments, thanks!

Art paint



I'm so glad that we did this art and face paint party in the house. The kids love it and they really having fun! They can express themselves on their painting and paint whatever they want. Look at Dustin here, his painting his favorite red truck and for Dana, I don't know what she is doing. She is just mixing all the colors in one and make a mess. But she is having fun though! Will do this again next time :-)


miss my friend!


I missed those friends of mine in Grand Junction. I wonder when we could go back there to visit them or when they will visit me here in our new place? Well, some of them already working at the hospital either as a CNA, nurse or a medical assistant and I like it when they wear their scrubs uniform. Anyhow, if you guys working in the medical field and wanted to buy a scrubs online, you can get the favorite character prints, pink ribbon prints or even the fall prints for a very affordable price. Hurry before the October special sales end!



get a haircut


Today is Friday and we need to go to Alamosa around 10:00 - 11:00 am this morning to get Dustin's haircut. He's hair is long and curly and it really need to trim his hair. I would love to cut my hair too for a new style but will see if they are busy or not. I usually cut my hair in the house because saloon is way too expensive and sometimes I am not satisfied the way they cut my hair that's why I do it my own. If I could cut my son's hair then I wouldn't have to worry taking him to the saloon. I just need to learn how to cut curly hair and buy this hair cutting shears. This is the scissors that the professional hair dresser used so I might need to buy one.

marathon electric motors

Last time when me and the kids went to my husband work site, he showed us those big motors and generators. I am not familiar with it though but my 6 years old son was really interested to it, he wants to know what are they and how they works. I guess he is too young to know those things but my husband is trying to explain it to him. It was nice that we got a chance to see those stuff but we are not allowed to touch it, it’s kind a dangerous especially if you are not familiar to this kind of stuff. Anyhow, if you are looking for a motors and generators online, you might like to try the marathon electric motors from poolsupplyunlimited.com, you might find the one you need or if you have any question, call this number at (888)836-6025.

Kind a Dissapointed

We went on fishing today at Martin Lake and Horse Shoe Lake at Walsenburg Colorado. But we're kind a dissapointed. We hear that they really have a lot of fish there and have good fishing spot but when we get there, we didn't caught any. Every 30 minutes to an hour, we always go to different spots and see if we can get a bite or any nibble but it wasn't. The weather was nice though, and we got a very good spot to go fishing, it was shady and breezy, but as usual same as the last time we went on fishing, it was not successful. Wish we could go back at Echo Canyon and caught those blue gills and bass. Well, better luck next time, if only we could have a boat to sail in the middle of the lake, I am sure we can probably caught some, but its okay, the kids are happy though and it doesn't matter, we are happy to spend time together as a family and fishing is one of the outdoor stuff that the family needs to do :-)

divorce lawyers

Some says that marriage is sweet and wonderful but others say its not. Why? Because they don’t have a good marriage. Both couples are having hard time to each other or maybe there’s a reason behind their separation. We don’t know the reason but I am sure they are having hard time especially the one who involves in it and that is the children. Having divorce is not only decided for one person and you need to get a divorce lawyers to settle everything. I am not sure how it works though. I heard a lot of people got divorce nowadays. Divorce is very common this days especially to those people that don’t have a happy marriage. It increase this past few years and I am sure divorce lawyers is handling this kind of matter. I always wanted to have a happy marriage and for me, I am so thankful that I found the right person. So to those people out there who are thinking about separation or divorce and looking for a divorce lawyers, you might find the lawyer you need at stewartesten.ca.

Fishing at Sanchez Reservoir



We went fishing at Sanchez Reservoir, San Luis Colorado last weekend Saturday but unfortunately we didn't caught anything. I am not sure where the fish are, maybe we are not lucky that time. We try different spots but still the same, so after an hour or two of waiting to catch fish, we decided to go and try the BLM Ponds in Alamosa, but unluckily, the pond is all dried out. Well better luck next time ;-)

window swags

When you enter to my house, you will never find a big curtain. We used window blinds on all our windows. I really wanted to have a beautiful curtain in the living room that will match to our furniture but I’m not sure. Me and my husband still need to talk about it because he is not really crazy about curtains or any window swags in the house. But guess what? We have one in the kitchen window. We just put that couple weeks ago because we wanted to cover half of the kitchen window that way the neighbor won’t see me while I’m doing my stuff in the kitchen. Since we’re doing the kids room this next week we might end up adding some curtains to it and add some more frames and other stuff to put in the wall. But will see…

Fillet the Bluegills


We caught about 18 bluegills and 3 bass at the Echo Canyon Reservoir. It was a fun fishing experience for me and the kids. The kids love it and they really having fun catching the fish. The last time we went fishing, we let go all the fish because we didn't know that we will going to catch more that time but this time, we absolutely take it home and have it for dinner. Mike fillet the rest of the fish and I took 5 bluegills, clean and take out their guts and fry it whole. It was delicious! Wish we can do it again next week. I love fresh fish!

Went to Hooper



It was nice that we got a chance to go to Hooper Hotspring Resort with the Miera's Family. The kids really had fun. It was about 35 minutes drive from home and guess what? we stay there for more than 3 hours, the water is warm and it was nice. I am looking forward to go back there again not before winter or maybe this winter would be nice. Will see...

at Lake Beach Michigan




This is my first time to swim in the lake. It's almost the same as the beach in the Philippines but of course its not salty water, its a fresh water lake. It was fun though, the kids love it and Dana got a chance to play in the sand.

rustic bathroom


What kind of bathroom vanities you mostly like? Regular style? Rustic? Modern? Well usually many people use the modern style but there are some people too that like the rustic bathroom vanities design. It looks very unique and it adds a big difference in your bathroom. I remember when we went to Michigan, we went to Pro Bass Shop and use the bathroom. My first impression is WOW, the bathroom looks very different than any bathroom that I went too, it looks like a western look or some kind of rustic too. The design is pretty good! So if you like rustic furniture or wanted to make a little different look in your bathroom, you might like to get a rustic bathroom vanities from logfurnitureplace.com.

playbook on sale

I really like the playbook that my friend son using for his online school. It's pretty nice and interesting. You can bring it anywhere and use it anytime you want. You can download any games and videos you like. The kids will absolutely learn so fast with this kind of technology. We really want to buy playbook but then we decided just to get a new iphones. Well maybe next time if we find a playbook on sale or if we have enough budget that way my son can use the playbook for his online school and games.

Eye Allergy

Just got this eye allergy 2 days ago and until now, it still bothering me a lot. My left eye get so sensitive in the light and I felt like there is a dirt inside of it. My husband said it was an allergy, so I use the eye drop that he has and it helps a little bit. Last night we went to the meeting but then my eye started to get iritated because of the light. I end up staying at the bathroom for couple minutes. When I get back to my sit, I told my husband that I will wait them in the car but they decided to go home with me instead and not wait until the meeting's done. Anyhow, it was terrible. I got home very tired and wanted to go to sleep after we change. I really wanted to close my eyes and stay in the dark. Hope I will feel better soon, need more drops in my eye and maybe I need to take medication for this allergy. If  it getting worse this couple days, I might need to go to the eye doctor to get a check up, to make sure my eye is okay.

Moving in a small town

Moving in a small town is kind a interesting. I grow up in a City so I used to live where there a lot of people and big shopping area. But when we moved here in San Luis Valley, I didn’t imagine what our life would be in this area. We found a nice house to live, actually there are only few houses that is for sale at this area. Some of it have a bigger lot but the house is old and needs a lot of work. This house we got is the first house we looked. When I enter the house, the first thing that caught my attention is their kitchen cabinets design. They look like the one we have in Silverthorne. They have a lot of space and more storages in the backroom. The kitchen is pretty big and it was nice. That’s why we decided to buy the house and start a new life here in the Valley. I found a lot of friends in the congregation, they are all nice, friendly and lovable. We are also close to grocery store and I think that is all matters to me and guess what? We are all happy and my husband got a good job and sometimes on weekend we try to go in the mountains and do hiking and will probably go fishing this coming weekend.

Spider Web



 Yay, whos this spiderwoman in this picture? hehe, Dustin took this photo while I'm trying to show him how to climb. So I just sit down and say cheeeeezz! Pretty cool huh? This photo taken last 2 weeks ago when we went for a 10 days vacation in Michigan. This is the pretty park of the Stony Creek Metropark. After playing at the park, we went on swimming at their Lake Beach! It was fun!

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at Henry Ford Museum Michigan


This is me, Mike, the kids and my mother in law, this photo taken at the Titanic Grand Staircase, Henry Ford Museum.


 It was a huge ice-wall at the Titanic Exhibit


This is what the Titanic Grand Hallway look like, pretty amazing!

Titanic is one of my favorite movie for all time, played with Leonardo de Caprio and Kate Winslet. Seeing those artifacts, remind me of the movie Titanic. It's nice to be in that Exhibit, I feel like I am in a real ship. It was very interesting exhibit that you can only find at the Henry Ford Museum, Michigan.

Trip to Michigan

Last two weeks ago July 30th, we went to Michigan for a 10 days vacation to visit my mother in law. We made a 3 days trip, we stay 2 nights at the Hotel. First we stayed at Cameron Kansas, we drive about 10hrs then in the second day, we stay at Terra Haute Indiana, we drive about 9hrs and the 3rd day, we drive about 7hrs. It was a long way drive but its worth it though. The kids are great, they are just watching their favorite movies while were driving, we stop every 2-3 hours to use the bathroom. We really enjoy swimming at the pool in Holiday Inn, Indiana. It was a great trip and we’re so glad because we made it at Michigan safe. It’s nice to be in Michigan again after our last visit last 2006.

Fun at the mall

We went to the Mall of Partridge Creek two days ago and it was really nice. It was kind a hot but we’re walking in the shade so it helps a lot. We do a lot of shopping, we bought some swimsuit for me and for my husband since the kids already have one. I also bought a red dress at forever21, I like that store! They have my size! We also bought the kids their favorite toy at the toy shop and of course since it was so hot that time so we decided to sit down where their outdoor fountains are, we saw some kids playing and my kids really love it. Today were planning to go to the zoo and the kids are so excited about it!

Family Photos at the Convention

At the first day convention at the pond

Me and my adorable kids

Me and my husband at the second day convention taken inside the Pueblo State Fairground

3rd day convention, taken at Marriot Hotel

Last week, June 15-17, 2012 is our JW Convention title "Safeguard Your Heart". They give a very inspiring drama about True Love and an inspiring talk with the brothers. We learned a lot and we will surely apply those bible principles in our family life. Thanks for all the blessings Jehovah!

Pueblo Zoo trip





Pueblo Zoo was really nice, it's not a big zoo as the denver zoo but they have enough animals that my kids love to see. It was nice because we went to the zoo together with our friends, the Miera's Family. My 3 year old daughter was so happy to see the monkey's, lions, birds and her favorite is the ducks. She loves to feed the ducks in the duck pond. Dustin like the otters, peacock, zebra's and other big animals. Well, they don't have elephants, geraffe, polar bear but to see the smile in their face make us happy. It's just a happy moments to them. They really enjoy it and that 3rd photo of me, the penguin seems like me! He keeps swimming up and down, seems like he wants to get out on that cage.

leather dyes

I really like the leather furniture because they look very elegant and expensive but we don’t own any leather furniture. We only have leather jacket and I am not sure if we have any leather restoration kit in the house since our furniture and our car is not made of a leather material. If we do, we will absolutely get leather dyes at leatherworldtech.com, because they are the leather repair and leather restoration kit source on the web. If you can’t find any leather dye colors on your nearest store then look no further, you can get it online directly to your computer, you can get the repair and coloring kits, dyes, restoration tools and equipments, leather cleaners and more at leatherworldtech.com!

Eating dinner at the patio

Last night, I was cooking pork chop in the grill, I grill 2 jalapenos for my tomato salsa, I have some mushroom sauce left over for the pork chop and a tons of rice and I also grill some asparagus from our garden. Mike was writing a letter for his brother and friend in Michigan and since he was sitting outside, I ask him if it's okay if we could have dinner here outside. It was a nice warm day and its a perfect day to eat outside, it was so nice and the kids love it. They got so excited when I told them that we will have dinner at the patio.

At the lake




After we do our ministry in the morning, my friend Mary and I decided to stop by for a little while at the Home Lake here in the Valley. It was such a nice day and the view at the lake was very nice.

welding supplies

Just recently, my husband and I are looking for a sale on welding supplies online. He wanted to see if the price online is more cheaper than going to the hardware store. He work as an electrician and he knows the safety rules and security at his job. He has a lot of experience at this field. He wore a clothing protection at work because you know working at the electrical field is kind a dangerous. So whatever safety supplies, hand tools, wire brushes and even welding jacket and safety accessories, the bakersgas.com has it all. So visit now and get your welding and safety supplies here at bakersgas.com!

cohiba

I missed my grandpa a lot. He passed away more than 5 years ago. He is the one that really love to watch boxing and he smoke tobaco a lot. He is such a funny guy and we love him a lot. I am sure he would love to try the cohiba cigars. This is one of his favorite. I am not sure if they have Cohiba cigars available in the Philippines but I guess its only available here in the US. So to those people out there who love to smoke, just smoke moderately and don’t abuse your health.

This morning...

What happen this morning is, we had breakfast in one of the new opened restaurant here in the Valley, I won't mention the name. But the first experience I have is not that good. Why? Because at first their service is very slow. There's not so much people out there but I guess we waited about 30-40 minutes before we got our order and the customer seated next to us, I guess they waited about 45mins to an hour because their food arrive when we left and they just came after us. The food is good though, but they have some few mistakes to it. The hash brown is cold, my blueberry pancake is not totally cooked because I can still taste the flour to it. The eggs and hash browns are not salted. The service is good though, the waiter is very nice and I am not sure if we can still go back to that restaurant but hopefully they will fix it so that they won't have bad impressions to their customers.

convertible sofa

We still need some furniture in our extra room which is, we made it as a kids playroom. We put the small tv up there for the kids so that they can play their wii games. We have one book case, small aquarium and a kiddy chair as well. The bean bag doesn’t look good at all, I guess we need to get rid of it and buy a new c convertible sofa. Actually we have one in my son’s room, since he doesn’t sleep in his bedroom, we might take that out and put it in the play room and buy him a new queen size bed. My little girl need a toddler bed too. We have a lot of plan, we just need to save more money. Anyhow, while browsing online, I found this convertible sofa from DayBeds.com, they have great prices on all their sofas and its free shipping on all the items. We might find the one we need here in DayBeds!

yomega yoyos

If you already have Duncan yoyos then you might like to get a yomega yoyos too. I don’t think they are similar but I guess yomega yoyos is much easier to use. They have yomega brain automatic return, it’s kind a fancy but I think this is really fun to play. If my kids would love to play yoyo, I would like to get them one like this. What you think? There are many types of yoyos that you can choose from and you can also shop it by brand. So when it comes to yoyos, yoyoplay.com is the right website to visit.

My barbecue chicken


Our dinner tonight! Barbecue chicken with rice and for my husband, I also grill his favorite jalapeƱo. This is very easy since I only put salt and pepper for the chicken leg and I brush it with olive oil and when its finally cooked, I also brushed it with my favorite honey barbecue sauce. Easy dinner and the kids love it!

My little bundle of Joy!


As a parent, we always proud to our children. I love my kids and they are such a bundle of joy to us. They make our life happier and we always thanks God for all the blessings we have.

Raining for two days

It was rainy day for two days and I'm glad that it was sunny out side. It was a little foggy and I am sure tomorrow will be a great day about 70 degrees tomorrow I guess. So either I'll go out on service with the kids or if not, will do it this Wednesday. Our grass in the backyard was really green and they grow so fast. My husband just mow the lawn last Sunday and now we need to mow the lawn again. I guess we need to mow the lawn every week. I like rain but as long it won't rain that much for the whole week because here in the Valley, the temperature always drops to 30s to 40s, so it's little bit chilly outside when it rains.

my dessert for the day



Does it look yummy? I just made this easy dessert with the angel food cake, cool whipped cream and strawberries! Yummy and delicious!

Sunday, April 22, 2012

nice day!

Winter is done and spring is here, I'm so excited to wear my high heels and sandals. But I still wear my boots once in a while when its cold out especially when its rainy. The weather here in the Valley is very nice, we're in 70's already. Hope it's always like this all year long. But you know, we can't change the season. They said that summer is really nice here, not so cold and not too hot, they only get like below 90 degrees and that's what I like. Better than Grand Junction I guess. So hope I can see my friend this summer and I wish her the best for her trip to Philippines tomorrow.

xenadrine ripped

I know many people nowadays are on diet. Some of them talked about going for a juice diet or try one of the best diet pill in the market. Of course going to the gym is what others like to do, or just running and walking everyday is also a good one. I usually do my zumba dance work out at home using the you tube videos. I saw a nice dance workout online and for me dancing is fun. It makes me sweat and burn my calories as well. I never tried diet pills before but if I have too, I will probably ask my husband about it because he has a lot of experience about diet pills. I still need to make my own research and read product reviews, just like the xenadrine ripped reviews that I read few days ago. That’s why reading reviews will really help you find the right product you need for you to lose weight. So before you try or buy diet pills, read consumer review first and make a research about it so that you won’t end up wasting your money.

Eye Check-up

Me, my husband and my 6 years old son Dustin got an eye check up this morning. It went well and they didn’t find any disease in my eyes. My eyes seems healthy and there’s nothing wrong in it. It’s been a long time since my last eye check up. It’s nice to go once a year just to make sure everything’s okay. My husband need a new contacts and Dustin need a pair of eyeglasses. I heard that he don’t have good focus and the doctor mentioned astigmatism, so I guess Dustin has it but its not that bad though because when he get his eye checked and let him read numbers and letters, he seems pretty good at it, he can’t just read a very small letters. Well, either can I, if its too small already, I can’t read it far away. Anyhow, we didn’t get Dustin eyeglasses yet but we have the prescription and we can get it anytime we want. Maybe we can get it next week or so.

Planning for tomorrow

Tomorrow is another day to get together with our brother and sister in our congregation.

Mike will be working 8 hours tomorrow until 3pm, so tomorrow morning, I might going out on service if the weather is nice then in the afternoon clean the house and start cooking around 4pm because my guest will come at 5:00. That's all my plan for tomorrow! Dana and Dustin already excited to meet their friends.

this summer...

It was a nice day today, me and the kids have fun in the service together with our sisters in our congregation. Hope that this weekend will be a nice day too that way we can have barbecue party in our backyard. I'm glad we still have those patio furniture that we bought when were in Grand Junction, we just bought a new padding and need to spray the table to get rid of those unwanted stain and spot. Our favorite thing to do in the afternoon, is to sit down in our patio swing and watch the kids playing ball in the lawn. We still need to buy more chairs though since we don't have enough chairs especially if we have a lot of visitors. Can't wait for this summer, we have a lot of plans this summer so hopefully we can do it all together with our friends.

Lots of Work

Guest post written by Derick Burks

Having your own business takes up a lot of your time. People say to me, “oh, it must be nice to be your own boss, and not have to answer to anyone,” but actually, it is a ton of work. When I go home at the end of the day, I can’t easily leave work at work because my work is my life. It is my company. I am always on the clock, so to speak. Tonight, although I am not at “work,” I am following up on a discussion with a representative from www.t1internet.net. We spoke this afternoon about my company and their different packages and he directed me to the website to look at the different options. I told him I would do that tonight and then call him with my thoughts in the morning. This is the kind of thing I’m talking about. There is always something else to do, to research, to follow up on, when you own your own business. It is a lot of work, but not a day goes by that I’m not grateful.

How many friends of yours are getting married this year? Do you have anything to give for the groom or bride?

I wish I could send it to them personally but maybe next time when I get back to my hometown. I am not sure when but hopefully soon! Anyhow, when people ask me what kind of gifts to give for the groom and bride, I end up thinking maybe a kitchen set or whatever. But this time, when they ask me again about wedding gifts for the groom, I already know what website to recommend to them and that is the redenvelope.com. With the help of their website, it gives me ideas on what gifts I can give to my husband, brother, friends and love ones. Why not get your gift ideas now at redenvelope.com!

Dana loves it and I am so happy for my new creation for this week :-)

pool safety net

When you have kids in the house, it is really important to get a pool safety net in your swimming pool, you will never know what will happen, maybe the kid will fall in the pool accidentally without you knowing especially if you are not watching them. Some people usually use gates for their kids to make sure they can’t get out on their room. But if you have a big pool in the yard, it is really important to put safety net in it just to avoid danger for babies and young children. So if you don’t have pool safety net yet, you better get it now at poolsafetyfences.com!

baby hats

When the kids was born, the hats that the nurses put on them are very cute. We have a friend before, she loves making crochet baby hats and they look really adorable. She can sell it online if she wants too but she said, she only do it for fun and whenever she feel like doing it. She can make a lot and give it to some of her friends who are expecting or have a toddler kids and give it as a gift. Isn't that wonderful? Wish I can make those cutie crochet hats but I am not really good at it. I guess sewing baby dress is my thing.

Hats is one of the best Baby gifts you can give. They can use it in any season to keep their head warm. Love to see those babies wearing hats, they look adorable. Actually I still have those hats that Dustin and Dana wear when they are babies, I keep it because I like them and if ever I see a baby in our congregation, I might give those hats. I am sure they would love it. By the way thanks to one of our sister who gave my kids a wonderful present, it was another crochet hat and a scarf. Perfect in this cold weather and my little girl love her purple hat and scarf. So if you don't know what baby gifts to give, you might like to give them a cute baby hats either made by yourself or you can get it online as well.

2012 Our Family Photo



This is the latest photo we have for this month of March. Very proud of my family and I am thankful for all the blessings we have.

affordable scrubs

Why spend a fortune for a scrub? Does it need to be expensive or it doesn’t matter? For me, it doest matter as long I like the quality and its comfortable to wear. That is all that matters to me, how about you? I have some friends who work in the medical field and I think their scrub are affordable and it looks good to them too. I saw this flower print scrubs for $14.99 at Marcusuniforms.com and the style and designs are really nice. I am sure everyone would love it and guess what? You can get a very affordable Marcus nursing uniforms at their website, you don’t have to worry about spending a fortune for your nursing uniforms. So if you are looking for unisex scrubs in a low price, this is the right website for you to visit.

Setting up new utilities

This guest post from Lewis Beck

The thought of moving to a new house is really quite a daunting task for me. First of all I have three small children that still expect to be fed and take naps and all the normal routine things that we do at the house every day. Second of all our house even though it is not all that large holds a lot of stuff. We have stuff everywhere in ever nook and cranny. All of the stuff is the main reason why my husband and I decided to move in the first place and now that we are actually moving it is the reason why I don’t even want to think about the packing process. I know we have hired movers to come in and pack up most of the big stuff and transport it to our new home with more room for more stuff and new stuff but I am exhausted just thinking about doing all the work. Luckily the least of my worries is going to be getting my utilities set up with Dallas Texas Electricity Companies. They make it really easy.

Apple green dress


I am so happy that I sew a simple nice dress. I really like apple green, one of my favorite color. I bought a 1 1/2 yard fabric in a thrift store for only $1. Isn't that a great deal? just enough to make a dress and a skirt for my 3 year old daughter. It's my first time to make a dress with sleeves! and so far I did pretty good, I still need more practice hehe :-)

horseback riding...

Way back in my hometown, Philippines. I been wanting to ride a horse but we don’t have any relatives or friends that own a horse. When I got married and we moved in Grand Junction I saw a lot of people own horses and I found out to one of our friends in the congregation that there is actually a place where you can ride a horse but you need to pay for it. Its about 25-30 miles away from our town. It would be nice if I can experience those things. It sounds really fun to ride a horse but it is also scary. What if the horse don’t like me or what if I fall? Well, I guess there is someone who will watch you when you do such thing.

Anyhow, there are a lot of horse breeds you need to consider when you buy a horse. But for me, I would love to have a white Tennessee Walking horse. They are prized mounts for leisure riding and trail. But of course, you can’t ride a horse without wearing ariat boot and coat. These are one of my favorite brand because their brand is known for its cutting-edge technology and premium leather and this supports the riders arch but also increases comfort, flexibility and stability. By the way thanks for the article that I’ve read online from chinaspicejerseycity, it’s about the equestrian riding in China. Next time if we visit China, we will absolutely do horseback riding.

We got our new Alienware Laptop!

Our new Alienware Laptop just came last Tuesday and my husband and I are very excited to set up the new computer. This computer is for him to use when he play his eve online game. We have 3 computers now, one for me, one for my husband and one for the kids to use for their online school. The alienware laptop, we got cost a lot about 2 thousand dollars something. Well, I guess its worth it because my husband love it a lot, the connection was so fast, the features are really cool and amazing and it glows in the dark too. You can change the background color of the keyboards lights and it was pretty cool. My kids always say “daddy! Your computer look amazing!

back pain treatment options

My husband have a back pain problem especially in his lower back. He went to the doctor before to get a shot but I am not sure what kind of medication they give to him. He said it helps but it only last for couple months and then the pain will come back again. My friend mentioned to me about this laser treatment for back pain since her husband use this kind of treatment before and she said it really works. I am not sure if we have it here in the Valley. But anyway if you have the same problem, you can also try the laser treatment for back pain at northamericanspine.com, they will give you a back pain treatment options and see which one works the best.

Back to sewing...

Since we moved, I only sewed two dresses for me and about 3-4 Dana's top and skirt. Sometimes, I got lazy to do sewing but whenever I get a chance or not busy so much with the kids and have nice fabric available then that's the time that I can spend time with my sewing machine. It makes me happy to see my creation even though it's not a professional look. It makes me proud to see the clothes my little girl wearing, even though I don't have more skills in sewing but at least I can create a simple dress that is not complicated to make. Thanks for the sewing tutorial online from "Giannyl tutorial", I learned a lot!

American Idol is Back

Thanks for the article from Glenda Hanson

It’s time for the return of American Idol! It’s hard to believe we have reached season 11. This should be a good season without all the drama of new judges or concern about who likes or doesn’t like who. For example—everyone thought Paula and Simon just HATED one another. Then who does Simon pick as a judge on his new show? PAULA! All drama manufactured by the tabloids to get free press. When the new dates and times showed up on my Cable TV Advisor I put them on my calendar so I would not miss an episode. Unlike many people I like to watch the early episodes with the auditions. It’s fun to try to pick who will make it the farthest and who will even be successful outside of the show, in spite of how far they make it. I don’t always agree with the judges opinions at the auditions or who they pick to move on. I wonder if not getting chosen might even be the best thing for some of these folks? It would be interesting for AI to do a follow up show on people who didn’t make it in the auditions.

Sledding...


This photo taken last week. We still have a little bit of snow in the backyard, just enough for the kids to play but this week, the snow starting to melt and the little snow hill we made last week already melted so we never get a chance to go and play outside. This coming Tuesday and Wednesday it said, we will have more snow in the Valley so hopefully the snow will file it up again that way we can build another hill for the kids to play for their sled. I just hope it won't get so cold this week because I don't like it when the temperature drops down to zero hehe :-) but will see...

roller chain

I never seen my husband rode his bicycle before. I am not sure if its still working or not. I think it still work but maybe it needs air on the bikes wheel because it seems flat and needs air. We check the roller chain and it seems fine. This summer, he said we will go for a family bike ride. Since I don’t have my own bicycle, we are planning to get one this spring time I guess. The kids have their bike, we bought it last year at Walmart. If ever we will have problem with the roller chain, at least we know where to buy it because reidsupply.com have every type of chain in stock. So when it comes to roller chain and links, visit reidsupply.com.

Welcome Year 2012!

I am welcoming the year 2012! We are so happy that we got the house we like. Our moving work out pretty good. I'm done unpacking all the stuff and we started getting to know people in the area. We just invited a couple of friends from our congregation and we had them come over for dinner. We had great time, since they have two kids also, two boys a 1 year old and a 2 year old. My kids Dana and Dustin having a lot of fun. We wish that this coming 2012, will be a great year to us. I am still hoping that we can visit my family in the Philippines this year. So to all bloggers out there, thanks for all the visits and hope you will have a great year also this year 2012! Happy Blogging everyone!

Looking for a tropical fish

In this small town of Monte Vista, they don't have great selections for tropical fish. We already look in this town but it seems like they don't have pet store in the area. We look in Alamosa but they only have one pet store up there, they don't have so much tropical fish. Well, they have couple but they are not pretty good and some of their fishes are look sick. I guess we need to drive to Pueblo tomorrow and look more tropical fish. We only have two fish left in our aquarium and we need to add a little bit more, maybe 8 more fishes to make it to 10. Will see, if we can find more fishes that is not too expensive in Pueblo.

Staying at home

Guest post from: Constance Rodgers

Staying home alone with the kids was always what I wanted to do, but when my husband started having to go out of town for business I thought it might be a little more than I bargained for! Those first few nights at home alone were pretty much terrifying…every little noise and bump made me jump out of bed and run into my sons’ room. Eventually I had to go to my neighbor’s house and ask him if he would sleep in the guest room! (He’s a former Navy SEAL…) My husband heard about all this and thought the whole thing was ridiculous. He immediately went to look at flushing home security and looked into a security system and he bought me some mace to keep in the bedroom. We beefed up the locks and I must say, I do feel safer now sleeping in my own house, which is a good thing! I can’t believe I made such a big fuss as a grown woman but when you’re scared, you’re scared and there’s nothing you can do about it!
